Rooted in Spirit: Contemplative Practices for Mind, Body & Emotions

There is an experience of the Eternal breaking into time, which transforms all life into a miracle of faith and action. Unspeakable, profound, and full of glory as an inward experience, it is the root of concern for all creation, the true ground of social endeavor.

—Thomas Kelly (Quaker)

This winter, tend the roots of your lived experience of the Spirit. Contemplative practices open us in simple, wordless, natural trust to the Ultimate Mystery, toward the Loving Source of All.

Contemplative prayer is at the core of the Way of the Spirit approach to growth in faithfulness. From the wisdom of Quaker and Christian spirituality, practical, powerful prayer processes help focus our intentions toward collaborative relationship with the Holy. Way of the Spirit participants who practice contemplative prayer report life-changing shifts, stronger spiritual discernment, and new freedom for service or activism.
